Whoever is watching over me, thank you

You can always tell when two people are best friends because they are having more fun than it makes sense for them to be having. It’s unbelievable that we’ve only been back at uni for a month – the past few weeks have been a whirlwind and whilst it’s consisted of social stress, library breakdowns and a few tears, I’m having the time of my … Continue reading Whoever is watching over me, thank you

Starting the Wellbeing Society was the best decision of my life

During the height of exam stress and housemate drama last year, I would tell my friends (mid-mental breakdown in the library) that I was going to start a “crying society, where we all just sit in a room and cry together… Our slogan can be ‘you bring the tears, we bring the tissues’”. In a desperate attempt to remind ourselves that we weren’t the only … Continue reading Starting the Wellbeing Society was the best decision of my life

Benefits of joining a society or sports team at university

Hey everyone, just a quick one to touch base before the inevitable panic of going back to uni! I work as a Student Ambassador for my university, and part of my role involves writing blog posts and chatting to prospective students via the Unibuddy platform (I honestly have the best job in the world!).

To run the story as short as I can, I moved into the box room … Continue reading Honest advice for surviving the housemates from hell

Just a bit of a general catch-up: February 2019

Hello friends! The last couple of months have been a little weird, mainly because of semester 1 exams but also because of general life; my last post was one I actually wrote weeks before it was published, but I had to schedule it for after things in my life had calmed down. For those of you that have liked my Facebook page, I filmed a … Continue reading Just a bit of a general catch-up: February 2019

It’s hard to find your people at university

In my sister’s own words, “friendships at uni seem so temporary” and while it sounds like we’re all falling in and out of fake friendships, I don’t think that’s the point. University is the place where I think I’ve grown the most in the shortest period of time – I’m much more in tune with myself than I was when I left school. One of … Continue reading It’s hard to find your people at university

Things I have learnt this month: January

Hello friends! If your start to 2019 has been anything like mine, you’ve probably been camped out in a library or taking exams for most of it, and you’re feeling as if this month has been about 80 days long. Whilst taking exams does indeed put you into a bubble where it feels as if real life doesn’t exist, things have been going on in … Continue reading Things I have learnt this month: January
